The winner has been selected. Sacramento has been bestowed the distinct honor of becoming the first 5G WiFi city. Sacramento, Ca., through a new public-private partnership with Verizon, will be the first of eleven finalists to premier the latest and greatest communication technologies that “promise to revolutionize the daily lives of people in ways that we can only speculate on now.” Moreover, it shall be the “first in a series of game changing demonstration initiatives that will drive forward the City as a thriving diverse community that leverages new technologies to improve quality of life for all.”
Verizon has agreed to place small Multiple input Multiple output or “MiMo” cell towers in 101 locations. In exchange, Sacramento will pay Verizon $2 million over 10 years in lease payments.
The enticing opportunity from Verizon was too imperative for legal protocol. In his ongoing effort to attract high tech industries to Sacramento, Darrel Steinberg, the mayor that “has indicated that being a smart city is very important for its citizens”, and the Sacramento City Council disregarded the 10 day requirement of disclosure before a vote. The deadline for federal transportation money was the reason given for shortening the process. The unanimous vote followed a 5 day period of disclosure, rendering competition from anyCOMM and Siemens unlikely. AnyCOMM, maker of street lamp surveillance cameras, claim their Wi-Fi system would be stronger and the agreement would include profit sharing with the city.
“I think you should urge caution before signing a contract,” anyComm founder and CEO Rob Praske told the council. “We were hoping we’d have the opportunity to present an alternative.”
However, as of yet, they have no offer on the table I know of.
The deal was also allowed to move quickly through the municipal permitting process and Verizon will be able to utilize Sacramento’s existing conduit system, saving millions of dollars and time. Steinberg said we must “be willing to take reasonable risks if those risks are consistent with serving the public interest. We can’t continue to do things the old way and expect that we’re going to transform.” Reasonable risks?
5G is the next generation of wireless communications. It is the technology that will make everything we have seen in tech news media come to fruition. The Internet of Things or IoT will run on 5G technology.
5G is going to utilize a different frequency range than standard WiFi. It is not just a routine update followed by restarting your phone. The frequencies are different and it is what is known as a game changer. Here is a video explaining 5G. I’ll wait.
Welcome back. Did you hear, “The experts can’t tell us what 5G is because they don’t even know”? And, that they are experimenting on spectrums never used before.
5G Millimeter wave fields cannot travel long distances and are absorbed by trees and rain. Organic material and water? Are we not organic material and water? A blanket of “MiMo” towers must be in place for the 5G to operate. Some sources claim a tower every block. 5G is not intended for urban locations alone. 5G is going to reach every corner and include rural areas; globally, there will be 10 billion towers in a few years. That is more MiMos than people. What technology is going to permeate every inch of the US of A and planet with a millimeter radiofrequncy wave field?
Fortunately, we have a federal agency that has been established to protect us and ensure that the communication industry is operating in a safe and ethical manner. It is a department that believes public health is the number one priority. (This is not this author’s real opinion.)
Former FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s speech at the National Press Club in D.C. on 5G is disturbing. There are edited versions online. This is the uncut video. I recommend viewing the speech. After gloating over the billions that will be made, Wheeler states, “autonomous vehicles will be controlled in the cloud. Smart-city energy grids, transportation networks, and water systems will be controlled in the cloud. Immersive education and entertainment (will be controlled?)….5G is a national priority, and why… I am circulating to my colleagues proposed new rules that will identify and open up vast amounts of spectrum for 5G applications. We call it the Spectrum Frontiers proceeding…we do not believe we should spend the next couple of years studying what 5G should be, how it should operate, and how to allocate spectrum, based on those assumptions. Like the examples I gave earlier, the future has a way of inventing itself. Turning innovators loose is far preferable to expecting committees and regulators to define the future. We won’t wait for the standards to be first developed in the sometimes arduous standards-setting process or in a government-led activity. Instead, we will make ample spectrum available and then rely on a private sector-led process for producing technical standards best suited for those frequencies and use cases.”
Wheeler, the author of ‘Take Command: Leadership Lessons of the Civil War’, is the former chairman of the FCC, the agency specifically created to place safeguards to protect the public from giant communications companies and their technology, telling us that cars, energy, water, education and entertainment will be controlled by technology the experts do not understand? From 1992 to 2004, Wheeler served as President and CEO of the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association (CTIA). Maybe it is his affiliation with wireless corporate lobbying that makes him willing, enthusiastically, to disregard the prodigious amounts of research concerning the detrimental health effects of Radio Frequency Radiation (RFR) and Electro Magnetic Frequency (EMF). He has authorized the placement of a regiment of MiMo mini towers blasting 24 hours a day on every street, building, apartment, and, yes, school.
I am concerned that much of the research has primarily been done on cell phone usage, not a continual barrage of millimeter waves from towers placed throughout every neighborhood. Remember the video said, the experts don’t know. Are you comfortable with this decision made by Mayor Steinberg and the Sacramento City Council?
Symptoms of EMF exposure
Some symptoms of Radio Frequency Radiation (RFR) are fatigue, stress, sleep disturbances, depression, burning sensations, rashes, muscular pain, ear, nose, and throat problems, as well as digestive disorders. Children exposed at school have complained of dizziness, racing heart or irregular heartbeat, weakness, anxiety, fatigue, feeling faint, difficulty concentrating, and chest pain or pressure.
The National Toxicology Program of the US Department of Health and Human Services conducted a study on the effects of RFR on human health. The results of the ‘Report of Partial Findings from the National Toxicology Program Carcinogenesis Studies of Cell Phone Radiofrequency Radiation’ are in, sort of…. The $25 million study on 2G RF waves is finally, partially done? The rest of the results are to be released in 2018. This means that Mayor Steinberg and the city council have agreed to let the people of this city be subjected to a higher range of frequencies without proper research into the health impact of 5G technology. The study concludes RF microwaves increase cancer and damage DNA. Testing was done on 2G. 5G has a completely different range of frequencies between 30 GHz and 300 GHz known as a millimeter wave field. Now that cell phone technology and its usage have been around for years, there are some alarming health trends in children.
- More than 28,000 children (0-19 years of age) are estimated to be living with a brain tumor in the US
- An estimated 4,830 new cases of childhood and adolescent (15-19 years of age) primary malignant and nonmalignant brain and CNS tumors are expected to be diagnosed in 2017
- The average survival rate for all primary pediatric (0-19 years of age) malignant brain tumors is 73.8%
- Brain and CNS tumors are the most prevalent form of pediatric cancer in kids under 19
- Pediatric brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer-related death among children and adolescents ages 0-19, surpassing leukemia.
- It is estimated that, in 2009, a total of 47,631.5 years of potential life were lost due to brain tumors in children 0-19 years old
The most prevalent brain tumor types in children (0-14):
- Pilocytic Astrocytoma
- Malignant Glioma
- Neuronal and mixed neuronal-glial tumors
Thyroid cancer makes up the bulk of carcinomas in females (69%) and a large percentage of carcinomas in males (38%) – SEER Cancer Statistics Review, 1975–2012, Section 32, Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer by Site, Incidence, Survival and Mortality. Bethesda, MD: National Cancer Institute; 2015.
Due to the closer proximity of the phone to the brain of children compared with adults, the average exposure from use of the same mobile phone is higher by a factor of 2 in a child’s brain and higher by a factor of 10 in the bone marrow of the skull. In addition, dielectric properties of certain tissues, notably the bone marrow, change with age. The marrow progressively incorporates more fat, and the bone itself increases in thickness, hardens, and loses water over time. Both these tissues, therefore, have a higher conductivity in children than in adults and they receive a higher energy deposition from RF sources. – IARC Monographs On the Evaluation Of Carcinogenic Risks To Humans (Page 406)
EMF in schools
WiFi is now in every school and 5G will be technology used. Meanwhile, they are failing to safeguard the health of the children. Take the time to look into this list of studies and others. Click here.
I am writing this partly because there is little to no coverage of the health damage in the US media. Studies and research in the US must be found by spending time. However, there is European research. Let’s take a look at some important work done in Europe on the RFR effects on the body.
“Epidemiological evidence shows that radiofrequency should be classified as a Group 1 (Known) Human Carcinogen. The evidence for risks to health from brain tumors has substantially increased since 2010. The existing FCC/IEEE and ICNIRP public safety limits are not adequate to protect public health.” – BioInitiative Report: Medical concerns intensify over deadly brain tumors from cell phone use / Orebro University Hospital, Orebro, Sweden/November 17, 2017
There is a near a doubling of glioma, a malignant brain cancer with a low survival rate, if cell phones are used for 1,640 hours or more. “There is a consistent pattern of increased risk for glioma and acoustic neuroma with use of mobile and cordless phones” says Lennart Hardell, MD, PhD, Orebro University, Sweden.
The Central European Institute of Urology recently published a study finding a correlation exists between mobile phone radiation exposure, DNA fragmentation level and decreased sperm motility.
“There is increasing evidence that EMF exposure has a major impact on the oxidative and nitrosative regulation capacity in affected individuals. This concept also may explain why the level of susceptibility to EMF can change and why the range of symptoms reported in the context of EMF exposures is so large. Based on our current understanding, a treatment approach that minimizes the adverse effects of peroxynitrite – as has been increasingly used in the treatment of multisystem illnesses – works best.” – EUROPAEM EMF Guideline 2016 for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of EMF-related health problems and illnesses.
Resolution 1815 from the Council of Europe 2011 Parliamentary Assembly stated:
“..there is still a lack of reaction to known or emerging environmental and health risks and virtually systematic delays in adopting and implementing effective preventive measures. Waiting for high levels of scientific and clinical proof before taking action to prevent well-known risks can lead to very high health and economic costs, as was the case with asbestos, leaded petrol and tobacco.
Moreover, the Assembly notes that the problem of electromagnetic fields or waves and their potential consequences for the environment and health has clear parallels with other current issues, such as the licensing of medication, chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals or genetically modified organisms. It therefore highlights that the issue of independence and credibility of scientific expertise is crucial to accomplish a transparent and balanced assessment of potential negative impacts on the environment and human health.”
In their recommendations, Section 8.1.1. “take all reasonable measures to reduce exposure to electromagnetic fields, especially to radio frequencies from mobile phones, and particularly the exposure to children and young people who seem to be most at risk from head tumours”
230 scientists that make up the EMFscientists.org have serious concerns regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices.
A 480 page document from the International Agency for the Research on Cancer for the World Health Organization on Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields is full of information and references.
The Association for Research and Treatment of Cancer ARTAC and The European Cancer and Environmental Research Institute ECERI scientists emphasize the extreme gravity of the public health situation generated by environmental pollution, reflected in the increasing incidence of many chronic diseases and some entirely new pathological disorders.
New pathological disorders?
Other health concerns from EMF are opening of the blood brain barrier, neuro inflammation and reactive gliosis, and abnormal histamine production leading to cerebral hypoperfusion. Some argue EMF have a role in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
There are also factors that will increase the potential for harm. Some include:
Sacramento is prone to intense heat in the summertime. Sometimes Spring and Autumn can be warm as well. This is a problem because sweat ducts possess all the required features to reveal antenna-like behavior in the extremely high frequency band (EHF band or the millimeter/submillimeter band).
Paul Ben-Ashai, PhD at the Israel Institute for Advanced Studies at Hebrew University, Jerusalem explains in this video.
“Please protect Public Health and vote against exposure of the public to harmful G5 technology. Computer simulations have demonstrated that sweat glands concentrate sub-terahertz waves in human skin. Humans could sense these waves as heat. The use of sub-terahertz (Millimeter wave) communications technology (cellphones, Wi Fi, antennas) could cause humans to percept physical pain via nociceptors.” – Letter to the FCC from Dr. Yael Stein MD in opposition to 5G
Heavy Metal Toxins
Another factor of conducting EMF to our bodies is the presence of heavy metals in our system. Our bodies are full of heavy metal toxins. Dental work, vaccines, and some fish are sources of mercury. Lead poisoning is a major problem in our water and soil.
“If your cells contain metal, they will attract and enhance electrical frequencies like a lightning rod, which makes them more likely to develop EHS symptoms. In short, the more your body contains heavy metals, the more you’ll have health problems with EMFs.” – Brian Clement, naturopath with a doctorate in nutrition
“Heavy metals can weaken our field through their frequency outputs by modulating compatible frequency components of the body resulting in a weakening of the field thereby causing unhealthy biochemical changes. If you have accumulated toxic metals in your brain, and since your brain is an antenna, you can actually receive more cell phone radiation, which in turn can cause the microbes in your system to overreact and create more potent mycotoxins. This can create a never-ending vicious cycle between the microbes and metals in your body and your exposure to electromagnetic fields, which can lead to hypersensitivity. I have seen that a high percentage of illness including chronic infections are caused, and/or aggravated, by electromagnetic field exposure. Then chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and other chronic pain syndromes can easily develop or worsen.” – Theresa Dale, PhD, CCN, NP
What about the environment?
In addition to detrimental health effects to humans, there is also the impact of millimeter waves on wildlife. Studies have shown RFR has an adverse effect on fertility of animals. Fruit flies, birds, mammals, and amphibians all have impaired fertility from RFR. I recommend reading Birds, Bees, and Mankind by Ulrich Warnke. It is a 40 page brochure that proves that RF damage to the environment has been understood for decades.
Sacramento is in the center of the world’s leading agriculture region, is in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, has diverse wildlife and sits at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Trees, birds, bees, salmon, and a myriad of wildlife are key to our environment. Shouldn’t we have more research into the effects of RFR bombarding every inch of air and land before we allow high tech billion dollar industries to “streamline” the permit process for technology the “experts don’t understand”?
Will Sacramento’s plan for free wifi in the parks (playgrounds) eventually lead to animal free parks enjoyed by sterile citizens undergoing cancer treatment while under surveillance of facial recognition cameras. Is this really what is best for Sacramento? Is becoming the next gentrified Silicon Valley Smart City prototype worth risking the health and reproduction of the population of people, animals, and foliage?
What can we do?
Talking to your state and local legislators and demanding they protect us from the massive proliferation of mini MiMo radiation towers is a start. However, there is a catch. It is Section 704 of the 1996 Telecommunications Act signed by Bill Clinton. Your local politicians are powerless to the installation of a massive cell tower operation.
A State or local government or instrumentality thereof shall act on any request for authorization to place, construct, or modify personal wireless service facilities within a reasonable period of time after the request is duly filed with such government or instrumentality, taking into account the nature and scope of such request…
No State or local government or instrumentality thereof may regulate the placement, construction, and modification of personal wireless service facilities on the basis of the environmental effects of radio frequency emissions to the extent that such facilities comply with the Commission’s regulations concerning such emissions. `(v) Any person adversely affected by any final action or failure to act by a State or local government or any instrumentality thereof that is inconsistent with this subparagraph may, within 30 days after such action or failure to act, commence an action in any court of competent jurisdiction. The court shall hear and decide such action on an expedited basis. Any person adversely affected by an act or failure to act by a State or local government or any instrumentality thereof that is inconsistent with clause (iv) may petition the Commission for relief.
How does that make you feel, Sacramento? Your state and local government HAS to do what they are told, cannot regulate environmental or health issues, and will be sued by a corporation if they do not comply. This needs to be fought at the federal level. Repealing the Telecommunications Act and Section 704 is crucial.
The FCC, like other federal agencies, has the fox guarding the hen house. These agencies are filled with people that only have interests in the industry.
According to the European Commission the precautionary principle may be invoked when a phenomenon, product or process may have a dangerous effect, identified by a scientific and objective evaluation, if this evaluation does not allow the risk to be determined with sufficient certainty.
Under the precautionary principle, the producer, manufacturer or importer may be required to prove the absence of danger.
If that doesn’t work, what if we were to use the Nuremberg Code to resist the untested 5G?
The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved, as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that, before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject, there should be made known to him the nature, duration, and purpose of the experiment; the method and means by which it is to be conducted; all inconveniences and hazards reasonably to be expected; and the effects upon his health or person, which may possibly come from his participation in the experiment. The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.
The experiment should be such as to yield fruitful results for the good of society, unprocurable by other methods or means of study, and not random and unnecessary in nature.
The experiment should be so designed and based on the results of animal experimentation and a knowledge of the natural history of the disease or other problem under study, that the anticipated results will justify the performance of the experiment.
The experiment should be so conducted as to avoid all unnecessary physical and mental suffering and injury.
No experiment should be conducted, where there is an a priori reason to believe that death or disabling injury will occur; except, perhaps, in those experiments where the experimental physicians also serve as subjects.
The degree of risk to be taken should never exceed that determined by the humanitarian importance of the problem to be solved by the experiment.
Proper preparations should be made and adequate facilities provided to protect the experimental subject against even remote possibilities of injury, disability, or death.
The experiment should be conducted only by scientifically qualified persons. The highest degree of skill and care should be required through all stages of the experiment of those who conduct or engage in the experiment.
During the course of the experiment, the human subject should be at liberty to bring the experiment to an end, if he has reached the physical or mental state, where continuation of the experiment seemed to him to be impossible.
During the course of the experiment, the scientist in charge must be prepared to terminate the experiment at any stage, if he has probable cause to believe, in the exercise of the good faith, superior skill and careful judgement required of him, that a continuation of the experiment is likely to result in injury, disability, or death to the experimental subject. [“Trials of War Criminals before the Nuremberg Military Tribunals under Control Council Law No. 10”, Vol. 2, pp. 181-182. Washington, D.C.: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1949.]
We Have The Power
We cannot place the full blame on corrupt government agencies and the industries that run them. The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. Multinational corporations are poisoning us with our full consent. Not only are we consenting, we eagerly line up and camp out three days to purchase the tech devices that are made in sweat shops with slave labor to radiate and sterilize ourselves and our children, increase cancer, damage our DNA while destroying the natural habitat.
To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill. – Sun Tzu
Once the city is blanketed in 30-300 GHz I don’t know how to stop the attack on our bodies. Until then, on a personal level, there are safeguards you can take to limit RFR exposure.
- Plug in your laptop into your internet service device to limit WiFi.
- Use a keyboard and mouse to keep the laptop as far away as possible if you are using WiFi.
- Do not place the laptop on your lap! This increases testicular cancer and low sperm count.
- Do not sleep with your cell phone by your head. It will continue to ping all night, emitting radiation.
- Don’t hold your cell phone to your ear. This places radiation near your brain and thyroid. Use the speaker or wire connected headphones or ear buds.
- Use cell phones when you have good reception. Bad reception makes the device work harder, emitting more radiation.
- Do not use wireless Bluetooth. That is placing a radiation emitting device in your ear canal next to your brain.
- Turn off your WiFi at night before you sleep. RFR disrupts your body’s ability to produce melatonin.
- Tell your local schools to plug the computers into the internet service devices. If they have to use WiFi, tell them to turn it off when it is not in use.
- Eat healthy. Your body needs to be in good health to fight the effects of RFR.
- Detox heavy metals from your system. These increase the effects of RFR. Heavy metals also cause many detrimental issues and need to be reduced as much as possible.
- Maintain thyroid health. Your thyroid is critical to your body and RFR, toxins, stress, etc. all have a negative effect on your thyroid.
- Consider opting out of the Smart Meter. That is an entire article itself.
People that suffer from electromagnetic hyper-sensitivity (EHS) and/or hyper-sensitivity to multiple chemical products i.e. ” Multiple chemical Sensitivity” (MCS) can find information at the EHS & MCS website.

5G is coming. We need to implement technology responsibly and consider what RFR is doing to us, our kids, animals, and the planet. EVERYTHING is made out of frequencies. Our health is easily disrupted by frequencies. Once DNA is damaged and passed on, it cannot be reversed. Tell everyone you know and act immediately or we may enter an atrocious era in our journey of mankind.
